Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan doubled down on his comments from earlier in the year calling to “kill and confront” MAGA while specifically targeting J.D. Vance in his rhetoric during the debate on Monday night.
In the heated debate between Ryan and his Republican opponent for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate seat, Ryan was confronted and asked to explain his comments earlier in the year when he told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that the “exhausted majority” needed to “kill and confront” the extremist Republican movement.
Now, Ryan, during the debate — doubling down on his comments — included Vance in the group of people he labels as “extremists.”
Ryan, trying to frame Vance for his past comments, added, “Who says that the president of the United States is intentionally trying to kill people with fentanyl? Who says that the election was stolen?”
Donald Trump Jr: Tim Ryan’s Kill, Confront Movement Remark Makes MAGA ‘Enemy of the State’
Just days ago, Joe Biden declared that my father and his tens of millions of supporters “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” When given the chance, Tim Ryan refused to distance himself from Biden’s comments.
Even worse, Ryan doubled down: he slandered the majority of Republicans as Republicans as “extremists” on national TV, saying “we’ve got to kill and confront that movement.” . . .
To the people of Ohio: you voted by landslide margins to elect my father to the Presidency in 2016 and 2020.
Your support of him and his movement, the MAGA movement, does not make you extremists — it makes you patriots who love your state and your country, patriots who know your families deserve far better than the destruction Joe Biden and Tim Ryan’s decades of failed “leadership” has created.
Rather than apologize for making you less safe, less secure, and less prosperous, Joe Biden and Tim Ryan have decided to brand you an enemy of the state.
